In the beginning, the family dog barely makes it into the bunker, but does get in and is unharmed, although very scared.

Later on, Aunt Meg’s house gets hit by an F-4, and she has a golden retriever named Mose. Bill and Jo go into the house and rescue both her and Mose before the house collapses. Mose is completely unharmed and sitting pretty in the ambulance without a scatch :)

Jo's crew and Dr. Jonas Miller's crew (rivals) have similar plans. Ironically, both end up in the same places during most of the storms. They accuse each other of copying ideas.

Towards the end of the film, during an F5 tornado, 2 horses on a farm are seen trying to escape the path of the tornado and it looks worrying. However they thankfully do survive and you see them after the tornado ends.

Animals are put in danger and while no harm is shown, it is implied that they will be hurt. Not caused by humans.

While rescuing Aunt Mae after the tornado, Jo and Bill call for her but get no response. She is later shown with Mose (her dog) lying under debris. It appears she is unconscious at that time, but when they get to her and pull the debris off, she sits up and talks to them.

Often times the storm chasers refer to the tornados as “fatty.” It’s kind of subtle, but the word may be triggering to some.
